Taurus was a female Crunk&B trio–consisting of Doma, Notation & Jazz–that became slightly known for their heavily Salt-N-Pepa-influenced debut single "Taurus Here" in 2005. In January 2006, the trio made their first public television appearances on the now-defunct musical series, Showtime at the Apollo[1] and Soul Train, to perform their single, "Taurus Here".[2][3]

In 2007, the group was requested by the New Jersey Nets to sing the National Anthem.[4] That same year, the group released another single titled, "Get Out My Bed", which featured production by Mr. Collipark and guest rap verses from rapper, Hurricane Chris.[5] By the year's end, Taurus had departed from their label, Landmine Entertainment, and their self-titled debut album was shelved.
